I have only read bad things about the Womens however a lot of it seems to be about the old hospital. Can anyone tell me abou their more recent experience in the new hospital? I am planning to do shared care with my GP.
Thanks in advance

I had ds1 there. They were fantastic. I had what ended up being a birth with many complications and they were calm, professional yet respected my wishes. Food was rubbish though!

I had DS there in 2010th and they were fantastic. Birth suites are faultless, and they were very respectful of all my wishes. Ended up having an emergency c-section and felt completely in control the whole time. I second the food, get someone to bring you in meals because it's truly inedible

I birthed there a year ago, did shared care. Besides having to wait 4 hours in emergency for a labour suite and almost having the baby there it was pretty good. The labour suites are huge and the bathrooms have big baths (never got to use it though cause as soon as i got in i was pushing)
I ended up with my own room and double bed, the midwives were fantastic, it was a nice hospital. I went private the 1st time and I think the new women's facilities and rooms were better.

Food was fine, post-natal room was nice.
Staff at my labour and birth were not respectful of my rights.
I would not recommend it.

I'm having my first at the Women's in July. I have only heard good things about it (food aside!). In fact one friend delivered there just last week! There are always going to be some women who sadly have bad experiences, and this can happen in any hospital, but overall I am really happy about birthing there.
